I can understand why you think 2 and 3 will "entail an implementation 
overhead and that is too great for the very small benefit", but that is 
really who defined the Unicode should worry about, not the XML author, 

Also, (3) itself won't increase your spec complexity at all.

currently, it said

 [2]     Char    ::=    #x9 | #xA | #xD | [#x20-#x7E] | #x85 | [#xA0-#xD7FF]
                      | [#xE000-#xFFFD] | [#x10000-#x10FFFF]

if you take (3), it will replace the


part with

[#x10000-#xDFFFF] | [#xF0000-#x10FFFF]
